Electronics Watch has released two videos:  “A Cry from Palawan, The Philippines” and “What is at Stake Behind the Energy Transition,” focusing on the mining of nickel, a key mineral for batteries in electric vehicles and renewable energy infrastructure. The videos depict the environmental and social impacts of nickel mining in the Philippines and point out that the world needs nickel for the energy transition, but it cannot come at the cost of deforestation and destruction of local habitats, such as that seen on the island of Palawan, Philippines.
